- Scottish Government
Across the developed world people are talking about the ‘Living Wage’. Labour’s Prospective Candidate for Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley in the 2011 Scottish Parliament election, Matt McLaughlin wants to see a Scotland which is built on a Living Wage economy.
A Living Wage (currently set at £7.15per hour) means much more to workers than a better hourly rate. ‘Living Wage Workers’ are less dependent on benefits, live in better housing, eat healthier food and have confidence that they can heat their homes in the winter. Living Wage Workers children do better at school and have healthier lifestyles.
Despite all of the talk about economic pressures, Scotland can still achieve a Living Wage economy and in doing so our people, our communities and our economy will benefit. Back Matt's campaign for a LIVING WAGE.
We the undersigned call upon the Scottish Government to ensure that all workers providing public services are paid a Living Wage.
